5 songs that describe Leo Messi just perfectly
Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger
An absolute motivational anthem which is also the theme song for the equally epic film Rocky III. The are many talks about Messi being 'not human'. That said, given Leo's impeccable vision, he certainly has an eye of the tiger.
Risin' up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
Rob Bailey & The Hustle Standard – Beast
How many time have we heard Leo called 'the beast'? Oh, million times and still counting! And this high-octane track filled with raw energy is probably the best song about what it takes to be such a beast.
I control my breath, keep my body ready.
Focus on the finish, and keep my head steady.
Breathe in (breathe), Breathe out (breathe).
Breathe in (breathe),
Watch out. I'm a motherfuckin' Beast!
Eminem - Till I Collapse
As is the case with the previous track, this tune is extremely popular across the gyms around the world. And rightly so. The groove, the meaning, the inner strength – it has it all. Just like Messi.
'Cause sometimes you just feel tired, you feel weak
And when you feel weak you feel like you want to just give up
But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you want to just fall flat on your face and collapse
LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out
An iconic hip-hop classic which is probably the best soundtrack when Leo decides games single-handedly, especially in matches when the going gets tough for Barca as it was in the weekend's showdown against Sevilla.
Don't call it a comeback
I've been here for years
I'm rocking my peers
Puttin' suckers in fear
Makin' the tears rain down like a monsoon
Metallica – Fuel
This track by heavyweights of rock is filled with untamped energy that has no boundaries or limits. It often goes unnoticed but have you ever witnessed Messi getting so tired that it would affect his performance? Erm... Not often, haven't you?
Oh, on I burn,
Fuel is pumping engines,
Burning hard, loose and clean
And I burn,
Turning my direction,
Quench my thirst with gasoline
